West Ham manager Slaven Bilic admitted his relief after his team eased the pressure on him by beating Huddersfield and climbing off the bottom of the Premier League on Monday night.

Defeat to Huddersfield would have left the charismatic Croat in real danger of becoming the second managerial casualty of the season, after Frank de Boer was sacked by pointless Crystal Palace Monday.

Ayew set up Obiang's goal and then poked home after Fonte's shot from Aaron Cresswell's corner was blocked.

Javier Hernandez hit the bar in the first half, in one of West Ham's few clear-cut chances.

Second-half goals from Pedro Obiang and Andre Ayew gave West Ham their first three points of the season, leaving Wagner fuming with Huddersfield's lacklustre attacking display on Monday.

Allen made 190 league appearances for West Ham, scoring 25 goals, and also played for Queens Park Rangers, Portsmouth and Southend United.

The defeat leaves Town sixth on the Premier League ladder. After a hard first season here, West Ham won their first home game of the season this evening beating Huddersfield Town 2-0.

"No, because we have not deserved to win any games so we were where we should have been, but we deserved to win this game", he said. We were second best in more or less every area.

With club record signing Marko Arnautovic still suspended after his red card against Southampton last month, United manager Slaven Bilic has opted for a change in formation to accommodate his front two.

"But football is an offensive game as well and we were not good enough, not fearless enough".

'It's nice to be back on the pitch, ' the 28-year-old added.
